Lady in the Van

Lady in the Van – Maggie Smith plays Miss Shepherd, the lady in the van who parks her van and lives out of it in front of people’s houses. One day, Allan Bennett (Alex Jennings) a writer, moves into the neighborhood. Soon, he invites her to park the van in his driveway, and she takes up residence for the next 15 years. The film is based on a “mostly true” story, as is told to us at the beginning. Maggie Smith is great (as always) playing a cantankerous, homeless women whose story becomes evident as the move progresses. Thumbs up for a really “easy” film; it is not terribly deep and skirts along the surface of what is troubling her. However, the film overall is entertaining. (2015; 3.5 Stars)
